IRVINE, CA, UNITED STATES, April 25, 2024 / — PROTOCONCEPT GOLF, a luxury Japanese golf club designer and manufacturer, introduces its latest addition to the new 2024 product line-up, the CO1.5TH. A forged hybrid iron that is designed for a combination of playability and spin performance.

“Our engineers reconstructed the previous CO1.5 forged hybrid long iron and made significant improvements for superior ball flight and spin performance,” said Yasufumi Kawasaki, Founder of PROTOCONCEPT GOLF. “We’re excited to release the new CO1.5TH forged hybrid iron. Golfers are going to appreciate how easy these irons are to launch for increased distance and with total control.”

The new C01.5TH features a hollow body with a dynamic face that generates immense ball speeds to carry the ball farther. The center of gravity is strategically positioned to promote playability with a controlled ball flight and is easy to launch. Now, golfers can get the distance of a fairway wood but can hold the green with precision and style. The new C01.5TH maintains the striking Tour-inspired low-profile head aesthetic from its predecessor.

“The C01.5TH does feature a Tour-inspired head with its overall appearance and specifications, but it is designed also for forgiveness, which is important for all golfers, no matter the handicap,” said Marcy Kamoda, CEO of PROTOCONCEPT GOLF.

The improved hollow-body and Tour-inspired head shape of the C01.5TH features a dynamic, strong, and responsive SAE8655 steel face used for improved distance performance and power. The refined but ample C01.5TH sole provides remarkable forgiveness and accuracy.

The new C01.5TH features a slightly thicker top line for weighting purposes and to accommodate the perfectly placed center of gravity which provides forgiveness, maneuverability, and overall better ball striking.

The C01.5TH forged hybrid irons are offered in #3 and #4 and are now in-stock and available. They retail for $499.00 each. As with all PROTOCONCEPT GOLF products there are many shafts, club lengths, lie, and grip options for a highly custom and personal fit.
